“Vergeten Volk” (“Forgotten People”) is both a lament and a ‘call to action’, written from the perspective of the forgotten creatures of myth and folklore. “Sing our tale, go and look for us. We will never be lost.” Although forgotten by mankind over time those creatures are still there, though not always visible in the realms of man. The song portrays the sorrow of losing one’s sense of belonging and becoming detached from the world, and invites the listener to retrieve the imagination and sense of wonder we all had as children, but may have lost along the way. The story is told in Dutch, Irish and English – folklore transcends all language barriers.
SeeD, where the flying Fae have you been? Well to be completely honest. Keeping up an online appearance is far from our forte, nor is other office work. Creating new music and writing faery tales is. We are honestly sorry that this means our music doesn't reach your ears much. (We might need to think about hiring a booker)
IN OTHER NEWS
The first studio dates have been set to record our third album!
And we are all doing much better in the caverns of our mind, so huzzah!
We miss you all, stay strong, keep creating and be sure to give yourself a great new year, you deserve it!
p.s. Picture by John Richard, I asked the audience to turn around before we started playing, because we didn't have enough time to go on and off stage before the show for a well rehearsed, theatrical entrance.
A thing we're being confronted with every day is the state of the world. With the world being smaller than ever with the interwebz. Sometimes it's tough being conscious of all the shit that goes on. Sadly, we're not all wizards. Sadly we don't have the power to change the world in one motion. So what can we do? We can make the world a bit more beautiful with the skills and personalities we have. Create something that makes it worth getting up in the morning, for yourself or other people. Meet other people and perhaps inspire them. We can certainly tell that we've met many interesting people that make the world prettier!
It's strange to think what our lives would look like if we hadn't founded a band in an attic in Breda.
My dearest SeeDlings,
This was an interesting, but great year for us!
We're collaborating with someone we used to look at in awe when he was on the stage with other bands. Thanks for coming into our life, Joe <3
We played in parts of Europe we'd never been to before.
We played an amazing Castlefest!
Each and every day the SeeDlings are spreading across the world and growing bigger than we could ever anticipate. Thank you Maike from 'Creepy and Cute'!
But most of all we recuperated from a dark place the mind can dwell. Still recovering, but we're getting back up there. And you guys helped us out a lot. The love we felt at Castlefest was overwhelming.
Sure, being in a band is about reaching people and having a good time together. But to us, living with our listeners through the good and bad times is more important, crying together, smiling together, sharing things with each other that helps everyone out for LIFE, making the world a better place for everyone that is struggling. Even if that means we're not blasting out bookings here and there.
SeeD is about being something that lives and breathes, and sometimes hibernates to emerge stronger.
This year we're planning on organizing our Goblin's Grove again (sadly the location we had in mind is closing their doors forever, so a bit of a delay there)
We're travelling to Glastonbury to play an amazing Faery Ball. And many more adventures are in store, like:
HITTING THE STUDIO AGAIN!
We wish you all an amazing year!

SeeD(ee) @ Castlefest 2017 - Official
The time has come. We, who have always stood and cheered in the audience of the big-ass 'Forest Stage', are proud to announce that we will stand upon that very stage this year!
So if you haven't booked your ticket for this year's Castlefest yet, this might persuade you:
- SeeD will perform there on all three days, on all three stages!
- We are releasing our precious new SeeDee (CD) on Castlefest, so if you want to get one of the first signed copies, this is your chance!
- We will be a very happy and huggable group of people. Possibly sweaty and smelly as well.
For more info: keep checking out our SeeD page posts and the Castlefest page/website!
Hope to see you all there!
Was Castlefest Winter Edition 2016 amazing or what?! It's awesome to see the event is growing into a beautiful Winter flower and we are very excited to have been a part of that this year. The whirlwind of energy we created with you is enough to get us through the darkest of winters. That was an amazing party we won't ever forget. It's way up there on the lists of greatest shows so far!
We're grateful to be bound to each and everyone one of you through the Roots!
Thank you Castlefest and everyone involved in making this event stand!

My dearest SeeDlings,
Perhaps some of you have noticed the weekly rehearsal posts have stopped and SeeD is quiet. There's nothing to worry about, on the contrary. We've started to work on something that requires you to turn inwards.
We are preparing everything for our Winter studio adventure.
It requires a different view on your tracks. It's about adding additional layers to your music that you can't bring live. It's a whole new game.
We'll definitely keep you posted!
Guess what? We have a surprise for you! And we're very excited to finally be able to share the news:
We are proud to announce that we will be playing at this year's CASTLEFEST!!!
We're looking forward to enjoying this great festival with all of you, and are hoping to see many of you in the audience during (at least ;) ) one of our three shows at the Village Stage!
My dearest international, and especially Italian SeeDlings,
The SeeD keeps growing. The SeeD rides the wind like the Dandelion's offspring! And next year we will ride that same wind all the way to Italy!
We're proud to be present that we will be delivering Italy a great show at the wonderful festival YGGDRASIL
Will we see you there?
